    I was going to post a pic of my 4 CNW Dash 9 units headed by my UP Dash 9 but I cant find the dang camera.

    So here is a pick I have from a Miced Goods Freight Train.

    UP Dash 9 heading a BNSF Dash 8-40B with mixed freight.

    Thanks

    The cones are made by Scale Scenics but they are really hard to find now, I bought a TON of them from my LHS but they don't have anymore now cause I cleaned them out of there supply and they don't know when they will get more:cry: :cry:

    IDK what they used in the 1950's, same thing I imagine?

    They usually used sawhorses with either white/black or yellow/black zebra striping. I don't recall Baltimore County using cones before the late 60s.
